ON THE FICKIAN DIFFUSION OF ORGANIC PENETRANTS IN GLASSY-POLYMERS

Fickian diffusion of organic penetrants in glassy polymers is formulated as a moving‐boundary problem, and the effect of concentration‐dependent diffusivity on the concentration distribution is investigated. The solutions obtained for concentration‐dependent and constant diffusivity cases are compared. The results show that the concentration distribution curves differ both quantitatively and qualitatively. It is concluded that the sharp advancing boundary between the glassy and rubbery regions is due not only to the discontinuous change in the physical properties of these regions but also to the strong concentration dependency of diffusivity.

A new soluble conducting polymer and its electrochromic devices

A new polythiophene derivative was synthesized by both chemical and electrochemical oxidative polymerization of 1-(1-phenylethyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (PETPy). Of which the chemical method produces a polymer that is completely soluble in organic solvents. The structures of both the monomer and the soluble polymer were elucidated by nuclear magnetic resonance (H-1 and C-13 NMR) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The average molecular weight has been determined by gel permeation chrom...
On the cryptoannulenic behavior of certain corannulenes
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Informa UK Limited, 1996-01-01)
Cryptoannulenic behavior of certain corannulenes is investigated within the Framework of Huckel molecular orbital theory. It has been found that the cryptoannulenic behavior of the corannulenes studied, generally arises from the type of their individual peripheral rings (4m or 4m + 2) but not from the type of the inner or outer periphery of the whole corannulene system.
Viscoelastic properties of reactive and non-reactive blends of ethylene-methyl acrylate copolymers with styrene-maleic anhydride copolymer
Bayram, G; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Xanthos, M (Wiley, 2001-02-01)
The effects of compatibilizing reactions on the viscoelastic properties and morphology of ethylene-methyl acrylate copolymers were studied. Potentially reactive blends of styrene-maleic anhydride copolymer (SMAH) and a terpolymer of ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA) were compared with a nonreactive blend of SMAH and an ethylene/methyl acrylate (E-MA) copolymer with similar rheological properties. Melt mixing was carried out in a batch mixer and in a co-rotating twin screw extruder. T...
AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF POLYVINYL-CHLORIDE) EMULSION POLYMERIZATION - EFFECT OF INITIATOR AND EMULSIFIER CONCENTRATIONS ON POLYMERIZATION KINETICS AND PRODUCT PARTICLE-SIZE
Karakaş, Gürkan (Wiley, 1989-01-01)
Effects of concentration changes in initiator species Na2SO3, (NH4)2S2O8 and CuSO4, and emulsifier, ammonium stearate, on poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) emulsion polymerization kinetics and on product particle size were experimentally investigated. It was observed that to obtain industrially significant rates and overall conversions, not only an optimum concentration ratio of Na2SO3/(NH4)2S2O8/CuSO 4 must be used, but also the concentrations of these species must be above certain limits. Increasing the concentr...
Reactive extrusion of poly(ethylene terephthalate)-(ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate)-organoclay nanocomposites
Alyamac, Elif; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2007-04-01)
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of component concentrations and addition order of the components on the final properties of ternary nanocomposites composed of poly(ethylene terephthalate), organoclay, and an ethylene-methyl acrylate-glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA) terpolymer acting as an impact modifier for PET. In this context, first, the optimum amount of the impact modifier was determined by melt compounding binary PET-terpolymer blends in a corotating twin-screw extruder. The amount...
